Last October, Matthew Wolff tied for third at the AJGA Ping Invitational at Karsten Creek. During his time in Stillwater, Okla., Wolff made an unofficial visit to Oklahoma State.
â€œI had the feeling (that I wanted to go there) as soon as I stepped on campus,â€ said Wolff, who would make another visit to Stillwater about a month ago. â€œâ€¦ I just didnâ€™t see a school that could top it.â€
On Tuesday, Wolff, a 16-year-old from Agoura Hills, Calif., verbally committed to the Cowboys. Golfweekâ€™s No. 4-ranked golfer in the Class of 2017, Wolff chose Oklahoma State over UCLA, Oregon and Florida. He also considered Texas, Stanford and Wake Forest.
â€œIt was a hard decision, but I feel like I had the right people around me and Oklahoma State felt like the right choice,â€ Wolff told Golfweek after committing. â€œI liked the coaches there. I think they are the best in college golf. You couldnâ€™t ask for better coaches. They are supportive, they push you, and they know the keys to move you into a great college career and pro career.â€
